March Olympiad

MARCH OLYMPIAD

Saturday, March 22nd 2014

Join Stormhold as we come together in the dwindling summer to celebrate the triumphs of the Greek Nations! Participate in a range of Olympic style tests of strength, intelligence and ability. Cheer on the heavy fighters as they struggle to win the team melee tourney. Listen to the liltling tones of the local Sirens. Perhaps tantalize your tastebuds with the novelty of ancient Greek food or even help keep guard over the spit roast so the hungry hoards don’t demolish it before dinner!

First event? On a tight budget? Not to worry! If you let us know in your booking you will be provided with era appropriate garb on the day. Volunteers get a discount, please contact the steward for details.

Tournament
Given the traditions of the Greek Nations (think Sparta), the tourney will be a team melee style. If we have enough participants, the team will consist of one knight, one pole arm, one left hander and one person authorised for less than a year.

After the main melee, a game melee will be held. Streamer Tag - fighters must protect their streamer from the other team while transporting it from each side of the field. Each lap provides one point, game ends when both teams streamers are destroyed.

 

Pagentry and the olympic torch procession
